A couple of days ago 20 disabled people occupied the Department of Work and Pensions in protest about the "Welfare Reforms" (Arbeit Macht Frei policy) of the current goverment.
As far as I can tell there has been no media reporting about this.
I wonder why.

Given the publicity ONE fathers for justice protesting used to get. A protest inside a goverment department would normally be VERY big news.

Perhaps the organizers of the protest forgot to notify the media. Or maybe something more interesting happened that day

Have you any idea just how much explosive can be packed into the frame of a wheelchair?

Well maybe they should have made a threat about explosives.

Did they get into a secure area and threaten the security of anyone the media would deem important?
